Manuka Doctor ApiNourish rejuvenating face mask*
A few years ago, there was a lot of buzz about the skincare benefits of honey, and it seems that bee venom is just as good, if not better. Korean research has shown it to be anti-inflammatory, anti-ageing and beneficial against acne and spots, which is perfect for me as despite being in my twenties, I find a lot of the anti-ageing products too rich for my combination skin and consequently break out in spots as a result.
So onto the mask itself. On application, it feels more like a thick cream than a tradtional face mask. Because of this it doesn't fully dry, but after a few minutes, there's a very slight tingling sensation. It's got quite a long treatment time (15-30 minutes) so I usually sit down and relax with an epiosde of my favourite TV show whilst I've got this on.
Because the face mask doesn't dry, it rinses off really easy with luke warm water, and afterwards my skin feels temporarily more plumped up and hydrated. With continued use, I've noticed it helping to even out my skintone too, and acne scars seem to fade away quicker.
Overall, I do like this facemask. At £49.99 for a pot, it doesn't come cheap, but you don't use much per application and I reckon I can get at least 10-15 treatments out of this one jar. Plus anything that keeps my skin looking young whilst helping to prevent spots gets a big thumbs up from me.
